Yvette Lind

Junior Global Horizons Fellow, SCAS.
Assistant Professor of Tax Law, Copenhagen Business School

Yvette Lind received her doctorate in law from Umeå University in 2017 and subsequently received a
post-doc from the Swedish TOR/Skattenytt foundation (2017–2019). In 2019, she was appointed by
the Danish Government as the legal expert in the working group drafting the principles for awarding
financial aid attached to the Danish Epidemic Act (epidemiloven).

Lind’s research is interdisciplinary, often using international taxation as the starting point for foundational
matters concerning, for instance, global governance, tax justice, and sustainability. This research is not
only of interest to tax scholarship but also to general legal scholarship, political philosophy, and economics.

She is an alumnus of the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance in Munich, and frequently
acts as a guest researcher at high-level institutions such as the IBFD – International Bureau of Fiscal Docu-
mentation – in addition to the Faculties of Law at the University of Cambridge, Lund University and the
University of Copenhagen.

As a Global Horizons Junior Fellow at SCAS she is working on her monograph (Tax)Citizen of the World.
The study aims to shed new light on the legal underpinnings of taxation, formal citizenship, and taxpayer
protection, when combined. Comparative examples gathered from Sweden, Germany, the U.S and the
U.K. form the foundation when exploring the motivations and legal outcomes of treating mobile individuals
